Enterotoxemia is an infection by Clostridium perfringens which affects several types of domesticated animals, but is not known to affect humans. It is also known as overeating disease and can kill the animals within 2 hours.
The disease is far more frequent in sheep than in any other animal species. It caused enormous economical losses before vaccination programs were implemented.
